AWARE extends hours for helpline
The Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware) has extended the operating hours of its Women's Helpline service from 3pm to 9.30pm to 10am to 6pm on weekdays, starting yesterday.
Singapore's first helpline for women in crisis, it provides emotional support, psycho-education, referrals for assistance and legal information.
Aware's Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC) Helpline has also begun operating under new hours to reflect more efficient use of the centre's resources. It will now run from 10am to 10pm, Monday to Friday.
Those seeking support or information can contact the Women's Helpline on 1800-777-5555 and the SACC Helpline on 6779-0282.
